پاکستان کو ڈگر پر آنے کے لیئے کن کن چیزوں کی ضرورت ہے۔ فہرست ملاحظہ فرمایئں:

۔ فوج کو واپس پیرکوں میں بھیجنا اور ضروری دفاعی اخراجات’ زمینوں کی الاٹمنٹ وغیرہ کا آڈٹ

پولیس کو غیر سیاسی کرنا اور اس قابل بنانا کہ وہ وفاقی وزیر داخلہ کے بھی اثر میں نا آئے۔

۔ عدلیہ کو غیر سیاسی کرنا اور اس قابل بنانا کہ وہ آزادانہ فیصلے کر سکی۔


۔ مقننہ کو صرف اور صرف قانون سازی تک محدود کرنا اور شوبازی جیسا کہ درجنوں کیمروں اور خفیہ والوں کے جھرمٹ میں وزیر اعلیٰ کے ‘بغیر
پروٹوکول’ کے رمضان بازار کے دورہ جات


۔ وفاقی و صوبائی وزیر اطلاعات کا عہدہ ختم کرنا کیونکہ ایسے عہدے صرف آمریت میں ضروری ہوتے ہیں۔ جمہوریت میں انکی کوئی ضرورت نہیں ہوتی۔
۔ کرپشن پر سخت سے سخت سزایئں عہدے کا لحاض کیئے بغیر


۔ پاکستان کو چین اور امریکہ کی جھولی سے نکالنا۔۔


۔ زرعی اراضی کو صرف اور صرف زرعی مقاصد کے لیئے استعمال کرنا اور ایسی ہاوسنگ اسکیموں کی حوصلہ شکنی کرنا جو زرعی زمین پر بنائی
جایئں۔ ہم دنیا کی فوڈ باسکٹ کا حصہ ہیں اور ہمیں ایسا رہنا ضروری ہے جو نہ صرف دنیا بلکہ ہماری بقا کے لیئے بھی ضروری ہے۔

۔ تمام تر مزہبی معاملات ریاست (یہاں مراد حکومت نہیں ہے) کے دایرہ اختیار میں ہوں۔ کوئ پرایئویٹ مسجد یا مدرسہ قائم نا کیا جاسکے۔ ایسے ادارے حکومت چلائے اور علماء ریاست کے تنخواہ دار ملازمین ہوں۔ عالم بننے کے کے لیئے کم از کم تعلیم بارہ جماعتیں یا اس کے مساوی اور اینٹری ٹیسٹ ہو جیسا کہ انجینیرنگ اور میڈیسن پڑھنے کے لیئے لازم ہوتا ہے

 اور بندہ بہت بھی خوش فہم واقعہ ہوا ہو تو بھی مندرجہ بالا اہداف کو حاصل کرنے میں پچاس سے ستر سال تو کہیں نہیں گئے

50 to 70 years minimum required accomplish this job if an honest govt starts this TODAY!.. I wonder we still be here after a century.

Now a days there is a lot of hue and cry is going on about China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and its future prospects termed as Game Changer in the world and making Pakistan an Asian Tiger. We are used to the term Asian Tiger now whenever, Nawaz Sharif, happens to be in power raises this slogan. Let’s leave it on the history and historians if Pakistan became and Asian Tiger or not in all those years of PMLN regime and focus on as to what does this “game changer” means.

Let’s discuss some key points which may be considered as Game Changer in the region:

  1. Changing the Fate of Kashmir?

The Economic Corridor will start from Chinese province Xingiang and enter Gilgit Baltistan. Here India comes into the scenario. India declares this territory of Gilgit Baltistan as hers and claims that it is Pakistan Occupied Kashmir which must be liberated and made part of (Indian Occupied) Jammu and Kashmir. Owing to this, new Delhi has taken an exception to this project and reportedly Indian Prime Minister termed this project as “un-acceptable” during his meeting with Chinese President.

Here, I see a silver lining in the dark clouds. As it is being reported that the project of economic corridor is of a strategic importance for China, we may see China playing its role in bringing both the countries to the negotiating table to find an amicable solution or dismemberment of this territory. Since, without resolving this issue the dream of CPEC may not be fulfilled in its true spirit. We will have to wait and see what kind of “game changing” solution is in the pipeline in this regard.

  1. Pakistan-Afghan Relations

Here is another game changing scenario which CPEC may yield for the betterment of Pak-Afghan war trodden people. Pakistan may be now looking towards better relation with Afghanistan shunning its policy of ‘strategic depth’. Similarly Afghanistan may have understood that having good relations with neighbor are more important than neighbor of the neighbor. Since the economic corridor is mainly meant to transport goods from China via the shortest route and import oil from (e.g.,) gulf in a similar manner the safety of this rout is of utmost importance to her. Pakistan has already announced the deployment of a dedicated army unit for the safety of economic corridor but it is not possible without eradicating the so called ‘safe heavens’ for terrorists on both sides of the Durand Line so as to ensure safety of the transport link as it passes through KPK and Northern Areas. In this scenario China will play a vital role in bringing about peace in the region and fighting the common enemy of terrorism also when China is investing in Afghanistan as well and the proposed corridor is likely to be utilized for Afghanistan Transit Trade as well.

  1. Progress in Local Manufacturing Sector

Due to load shedding and law and order situation (being main reasons) Pakistan’s Local Manufacturing Industry has been either on a spree of either shutting down or shifting to other countries like Bangladesh. Now there is a hope that our local industry may flourish since Government has announced the provision of Industrial Parks along the economic corridor. One may hope that Pakistan is not made the dumping ground of cheap Chinese products and focus is given on the local production to make most of the corridor to transport the material for export etc. If this happens it will be game changer for Pakistan in a positive manner otherwise. It will also prove to be a game changer for Pakistan if the local industry dies due to Chinese products ‘invasion’ in a negative manner. In this scenario, Pakistan will only act as a ‘post office’ or ‘Cargo’ company it is fate will be consumer market only!

  1. Are we being prepared for another adventure?

When the trumpeters of the Economic Corridor in Pakistan term this project as a game changer, one who is aware of the history of the territories comprising today’s Pakistan, gets scared. It has been around 30 years that Pakistan is in the state of the war. The generation born in early 80s have not seen this country in peace, ever. First we were fighting against communism in the name of Jihad and created thieves to counter thieves. One may be scared that in the war of communism and capitalism, now it might be the turn of communism to use the cheap labor of this region to fight against capitalism! If it happens it will be the game changer in a theocratic society of Pakistan. State has already kept mute regarding persecution of Uygur Muslims by China and so are our religious parties.

The above is just a small activity to find out as to what is meant by ‘Game Changer’. Is there something concrete behind this slogan or it is just a hollow slogan, like we have been listening to since decades. Nevertheless, this project is epoch making and whole nation hopes that it augurs well. What country needs now is not a political leader but a statesman who could foresee at-least 100 years ahead from now and takes decisions as such.
